Veggies like these

The temperature here is cooling off again. We had temps in the high 70's to low 80's for almost the past week. So some of the trees are trying to bud out along with my blueberry bushes. I hope that we do not get a freeze, but they are saying that it will only get into the 40's at night.
When it is warm it makes you want to get out there and plant to your hearts content, however, it is always best to wait on the majority of things. I did plant some potatoes, lettuce, and spinach for now.
I would love to have some of the market places here as they do in Europe. I'm sure there are some around, but I guess it is just the atmosphere that makes it feel so different. They also arrange things to look like a picture and feast for the eyes and tummy!!!

Here, take a look.....
Strasbourg, France (Hubby checking out the produce)


A little stand by Lake Constance (this lake borders Germany, Switzerland, and Austria)

Those produce markets look so wonderful. I can't wait until I can visit our local markets when the weather gets nice. There is nothing like fresh peaches and berries! Amy :)

Hi! Nice to meet you.
Thanks for visiting and commenting.
See you have spent a lot of time in Germany. One of my favourite places there is Heidelberg.

Your current weather in low 80's would be a hot Summer here.

Thanks for visiting and saying hello. It's nice to 'meet' you :)
How wonderful to have done some traveling in Europe. I've enjoyed seeing your photos. Love those beautiful windows and doors.
I see you've been plant shopping and bought geraniums. They give such a lot, don't they?
Your warm weather sounds awfully good to me!
But spring will be with us soon! Thank heavens :)

Thanks for your visit!
We love our markets in France. Here in Brittany you can buy very fresh local fish, vegetables grown by our farmers,local honey... but not some of the more exotic things that you find further south.
